I use this method to make buttermilk substitute all the time. I don't use buttermilk enough to justify buying a big carton when I go shopping. I do love making this bran muffin recipe that calls for buttermilk. I almost always use this substitution and you honestly can't tell the difference. You would never know. It's super easy to do.

The recipe is a good one. I hate buying buttermilk because I never need to use all of it. This eliminates having to buy something extra and throwing part of it away. The reason for only giving it a three star is due to the blurb about sweetened condensed milk under the video. It doesn't match the video or recipe.
